1. Curriculum of MS Biomedical Engineering

There are three MS tracks offering in the field of Biomedical Engineering at ZUFEST. These specialized streams/tracks and scheme of study are as follows:

  1. Bio Informatics
  2. Clinical Instrumentation
  3. Rehabilitation Engineering

Each MS student has to select four courses as offered by the University from the list of core courses and four or six elective courses from the specialization stream. A student can opt six credit hours research work/thesis instead of two courses from the specialization steam.

Note: Any additional taxes imposed by the government will be the liability of the students/parents/guardian.

The University reserves the right to increase the fees if required according to the recommendation of the Governing Body.

At the time of admission, selected candidates will be required to deposit fee either under Course Work Only Option or Coursework + Thesis Option. Therefore monthly or semester fee will be deposited by students within two weeks of commencement of every semester in advance according to the official notification on the notice board. 2% surcharge per month will be levied on outstanding fees after the due date.

The students claiming exemptions from any course or courses will be required to pay exemption fee @ Rs. 2,500/- per subject in the beginning of semester.

Fees once deposited are not refundable, except security deposits, for any reason whatsoever.
